January 22, 1862. 

The present edition of the "Naval Telegraphic 
Signal Book" being exhausted, the " Flotilla and 
Boat Squadron Signals " may be used in its place 
by vessels that are not provided with it. 

Should it be necessary to spell a word not found 
in the "Flotilla Signals," the numbers from 1 to 
26, inclusive, may be used as letters of the alphabet 
for that purpose; first hoisting No. 7521 of the 
Flotilla Code, to indicate that a word is to be 
spelled.

PREFACE. 



This Code of Flotilla and Boat Signals has been hurriedly 
prepared to meet the pressing wants of the Navy at this time. 
The work was commenced in the form believed to be the best- 
adapted to Flotilla and Boat Squadron service, and was con- 
tinued as other pressing duties would permit. 

Want of time would not allow the completion of the entire 
work, nor of any of its separate parts, before putting it in the 
hands of the printer ; and, to secure the greatest possible expe- 
dition in getting it out, the pages were put in type as rapidly 
as they could be written. 

Had time and other duties permitted a more satisfactory 
arrangement of the " Evolutionary," "Vocabulary," and 
"Geographical" parts would have been made. 

The general plan of this Code of Signals is similar, in many 
respects, to the "Complete and Universal Dictionary of Sig- 
nals," by Captain Wilmot, B. N., C. B. 

Washington City, November 1, 1861.

INTRODUCTION 



Although this Code of Signals is designed mainly for the use of small 
vessels and boats formed in squadron and divisions, yet it may be found 
useful and convenient for general use in squadrons composed of vessels of 
all classes. 

Flags. — The flags to be used in making the signals embraced in this code 
are the same as those in the " General Naval Signal Book." 

The same or any other numbers may be assigned to them; but, unless 
there should be some special reason for assigning different numerical 
values to the flags when using this Code of Signals, it will be advisable to 
use the same flags to represent the same numbers in both codes, making the 
signals embraced in the Naval General Signal Book, according to their num- 
bers, in the usual way, and by hoisting or exhibiting the " Flotilla and Boat 
Code Pendant" when the flags shown are to represent numbers in this code. 

In addition to the flags used on board the United States vessels of war 
for making signals with the Naval General Signal Book, there will be found 
in this code — 

1. Flotilla and Boat Code Pendant. 

2. Commercial Signals Code Pendant. 

3. Geographical part of this Code Pendant. 

4. Steamers' Cornet for this Code. 

5. Ensign. 

6. Union Jack. 

7. Cornet. 

8. Flag Officers' Flags. 

9. Long Pendant. 

10. General Recall for all Boats. 

11. Commanders of Divisions Pendants. 

12. Divisional Distinguishing Pendants. 

13. Boats' Recall Pendants, embracing all boats usually furnished to 
vessels of war. 

14. Steam or Reserve Squadron Pendant. 

15. Convoy Pendant. 

^Tomographic Symbols.— In addition to the flags designed and arranged 
for use with this Code of Signals, there are " Homographic Symbols," 
with a numerical value assigned to each, from 1 to 0, and for repeating 
symbols and answering signals, with which any number embraced in this 
Code of "Evolutionary" and "Vocabulary Signals" may be made by day 
without flags. These "Homographic Symbols" have been taken (with slight 
modifications) from the " Dictionary of Signals, by Captain Wilmot. 
R. N.,C. B." 

Night Signals. — The mode of using " Coston's Prepared Lights" for 
night signals is explained, and charts or plans, showing the different com- 
binations of colored lights to which numerical values may be assigned, are 
given. 

Naval Colored Lights. — A chart or plan showing the different colored 
(and combinations of colored) lights which may be used in making signals 



Vlll INTRODUCTION. 



with the lights known as " Naval colored lights'' is also given in this Code 
of Signals. 

By the Coston plan, or by using the naval colored lights to represent the 
numerals, &c, according to the directions, any signal found in the " Evo- 
lutionary" and " Vocabulary parts," and any vessels' or boats' numbers, 
may be made at night.— (See pages 148 and 153.) 

A few signals for night service, to be made with rockets, blue lights, lan- 
terns, flashes, and guns or musketry, willl be found on page 154 et seg. 

Fog Signals. — But few fog signals can be made from or to boats with 
the means usually at command. A few signals for foggy weather will be 
found under the proper heading on page 161. 

Equipment of Boats armed for service. — The instructions embraced 
in the " Naval Ordnance Instructions'- of 1860 have been incorporated into 
this Code of Signals to enable commanding officers of boats to satisfy them- 
selves that nothing has been omitted in their fitments when ordered on 
service from their ships. 

Boat Drill under oars. — A few evolutionary signals, with numbers 
attached, arranged in alphabetical order, have been inserted at pages 178-'9, 
designed to serve chiefly in drill practice, but will be found of easy refer- 
ence and useful, especially in cases in which the commander may desire 
to exercise his boats by signal from his ship. Blank numbers have been 
left which may be filled by the insertion of any orders that may be thought 
expedient. 

Vessels' Lights. — The general order of the Secretary of the Navy, dated 
November 10, 1858, directing the number and kind of lights to be carried 
by all vessels of the navy from sunset to sunrise, has been inserted, with 
the diagrams attached, to enable officers to familiarize themselves with the 
different positions of vessels as they may be shown by their lights at night, 
and lo enable them to guard against collisions. 

Rules of the Road. — Although all officers who have served in the navy 
long enough to be entrusted with the deck of a vessel of war at night are 
supposed to be perfectly familiar with the rules which govern seamen in 
the management of their vessels in crowded and narrow channels, and in 
meeting or crossing the line of course of other vessels at sea to prevent col- 
lisions, yet it has heen thonght advisable to repeat, in this Code of Signals, 
the rules laid down by the Navy Department on this subject— those gene- 
rally, if not universally, recognized by seamen everywhere ; and also those 
rules which have been published officially by the British admiralty. The 
insertion of these " Rules of the Road," in this Code of Signals, may, and 
it is hoped will, be the means of impressing upon those, into whose hands 
it may be placed, (who have not hitherto attached due importance to the 
subject,) the necessity for constant watchfulness, and the great caution 
which should be observed in approaching vessels at night, whose move- 
ments are not clearly seen or understood. 

Distress or Assistance Signals — The book concludes with a few 
arbitrary signs or signals for the use of persons in distress, or in want of 
immediate assistance, who have neither flags nor signal book. They are 
few and simple, and may be made useful to boats' crews and seamen gene- 
rally, to whom they should be taught. 



. DIRECTIONS. 



1. When this Code of Signals is to be used for communicating with boats, 
vessels, or squadrons, the " Flotilla and Boat Squadron " Pendant is 
to be hoisted or exhibited where it can be best seen and kept up until all the 
signals are made. 

2. Each Commanding Officer of a Division will carry his proper Distin- 
guishing Pendant. 

3. Each vessel or boat of a Division will carry the Division Pendant of 
the particular division to which it may be attached.— (See Squadron and 
Divisional Pendants.) 

4. Each Vessel or Boat of an entire Squadron may have, in addition to its 
divisional flag or pendant, an independent number assigned to it in the Boat 
Squadron list or in the list of Navy Vessels in this Code, or special flags or 
pendants may be given to each vessel. 

5. In making signals to a Squadron, Division, Vessel, or Boat, the number 
or distinguishing pendant must be hoisted above the signal flags, or exhibited 
from some other part of the vessel or boat at the time of making the signal. 

6. All Signals are to be answered as soon as they are made out. 

7. The Preparatory Pendant hoisted over a signal will indicate Pre- 
pare to execute the signal under it. 

8. A Signal made with the Preparatory Pendant above it will not be 
executed until it is repeated without the Preparatory Pendant. 

9. All Signals made without the Preparatory Pendant above them are to 
be executed as soon as they are hauled down. 

10. The execution of Signals which are not complete in themselves is not 
to be commenced, nor the signal executed, until the signal flags which com- 
plete the signal are hauled down. 

11. Each Vessel and Boat of squadron, division, or column, will watch 
the movements of the Vessel or Boat next ahead, and regulate its move- 
ments accordingly. 

12. Numeral Signals will be indicated by the Numeral Pendant hoisted 
over the flags representing the numbers to be communicated. 

13. Geographical Pendant.— All places named in the Geographical Part 
of this Code will be indicated by the flags representing the numbers assigned 
to them with the Geographical Pendant hoisted either above or below them 
according to the directions at the head of the page on which they appear. 

14. Vessels' Numbers. — Vessels' numbers, as assigned in this Code, will 
be made by hoisting the Union Jack over the signal flags at the fore or 
forward. 

15. Union Jack.— The Union Jack hoisted at the fore, without signal 
flags, will indicate, in want of a pilot. 

16. The Union Jack hoisted at the mizen will indicate a court-martial 
in session. 

17. Cornet.— The Naval Cornet at the fore, with signal flags at another 
part of the vessel, will indicate intention to communicate by the Naval 
Telegraphic Dictionary. 

18. The Naval Cornet hoisted at the fore, with signal flags under it, will 
indicate the number of the vessel as recorded in the Naval General Signal 
Book. 



DIRECTIONS. 



19. The Naval Cornet hoisted at the fore, without other flags at any part 
of the vessel, will indicate Recall of all officers and boats not specially 
directed otherwise. 

20. General Recall — When the General Recall flag is hoisted or 
shown, it will indicate that all vessels or boats are to return to their stations, 
or all boats to return to their vessels, as the case may be. 

21. Boat Recalls. — When the Recall Pendant of any boat is hoisted or 
shown, she will return immediately to her station or ship, as the case may 
be. 

22. Latitude and Longitude. — When Latitude or Longitude is to be 
communicated by signal, the Numeral Pendant will be hoisted over the 
flags representing the degrees; the Answering Pendant will be bent on 
next below, and the flags representing the minutes below it. 

23. Compass Signals. — The Compass Signals to Points will be found on 
page 5, and also around a Compass Card in the Introduction. The signal 
will be dropped once and hoisted up again for a quarter of a Point ; twice, for 
half a Point; and three times, for three-quarters of a Point; always counting 
to the right. 

24. Repeaters. — The first repeater repeats the first flag in the order of 
reading ; the second repeater the second flag, and the third repeater the 
third flag, in the same hoist. 

25. Interrogatory Pendant. — The Interrogatory Pendant hoisted above 
signal flags will signify either a question asked in relation to, or permission 
wished, to do that which is expressed by the signal. 

26. Quarantine Flag. — A Yellow flag will be hoisted while in quaran- 
tine and until pratique is granted. 

27. Powder Flag.— A Red flag is hoisted while receiving or landing 
powder. 

28. Meal Pendant.— The Meal (Numeral) Pendant is hoisted during 
meal hours on board all vessels of the Navy. 

STEAMERS. 

29. Steamer's Cornet. — The Steamer's Cornet will be hoisted or exhib- 
ited where it can be readily seen when the Steamer's Signals of this Code 
(pages 100 to 103) are used in communicating with vessels or boats. 

30. Towing. — The Preparatory Pendant hoisted at the fore, or ex- 
hibited forward when there are no masts, without other pendants or flags, 
will indicate Readiness to be taken in Tow. 

"SIGNAL ELAGS CHANGE," OR, "SYMBOLS CHANGE." 

(No. 3838, page 49, and No. 7852, page 89.) 

1. When the number 3838, on page 49, is made, the numerical value or 
symbolic characteristic of the Flags in the table in the signal book is to be 
changed for the time being in the manner prescribed in the note to the signal 
at the head of p;ige 50. 

2. When number 7852 (on page 89) is made (" Symbols change") and 
answered by all the vessels or boats of the squadron present, it is to be 
understood that so long as that order continues in force the reading of the 
flags will be reversed — that is, in making and reading >ignals, they will be 
made and read from the bottom or lowest flag to the top or uppermost one, 
being the reverse of the usual mode of making and reading them. 

3. Change of the numerical value of the flags or symbols may be a pri- 



DIRECTIONS. XI 



vate signal also. A certain combination may be determined upon by the 
Flag officer or commander of the squadron or expedition, which he names 
Change of Symbols No. 1, another No. 2, and so on. These combina- 
tions and numbers havingbeen previously communicated to the commander 
of each division, vessel, or boat, the signal No. 7852 is made " Symbols 
Change," and followed immediately by the number one, two or other num- 
ber previously selected to represent each change with the numeral pendant 
above it. 

4. These orders of hoisting and reading signals, or changes of values of 
flags and symbols, are not, however, to continue, when made by signal, after 
separating from the commanding officer who gave the order by signal, except 
in the event of a part of the vessels of the squadron being temporarily 
detached and sent on an expedition or on other service, and to rejoin the 
squadron in the same vicinity. 

5. When a vessel falls in with another vessel of the same or of any olher 
squadron which was not present when the change of values of the flags and 
symbols was ordered, the signals will be read and made in the ordinary 
way, and according to the values of the flags and symbols in the Table in 
the Signal Book. 

6. Commercial Code of Signals. — The Commercial Code of Signals 
having been furnished to vessels of the Navy, the Brief Rules, Directions 
and Instructions to guide officers in using it, are reproduced here. 



Brief rules and directions to guide Commanders of 
Vessels belonging to or under the orders of the Navy 
Department of the United States in using the "Com- 
mercial Code of Signals. 77 

1. One copy of the " Commercial Code of Signals" will be furnished to 
the commanding officer of every vessel in any way connected with, and 
under the orders of the Navy Department ; and it will be the duty of every 
commanding officer who may be provided with Signal Books to receipt for 
them ; to take personal charge of them ; to prevent their being examined 
or used by any person not holding a responsible position on board the vessel 
under his command ; and in the event of the loss of the vessel or immi- 
nent danger of capture by an enemy or rebel, he must use his best efforts 
to destroy them effectually. 

2. One set of " Rogers's Marine Signal Flags" (see page XXXIV of the 
Code) will be furnished, and also a Cornet and Telegraphic Dictionary. 

3. When serving in squadron the commanding officer may, if he see fit, 
use the Telegraphic Dictionary with the Commercial Code and flags in 
communicating with vessels which are not provided with the Naval Signal 
Book and flags. In that case the flags representing the letters b, c, d, f, g, 
h, j, k, l, m, will represent, respectively, in the order in which they stand, 
the numerals 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, and the assent flag will represent 
the first repeater, the negative flag the second repeater, and the Code 
Signal ana Answering Pendant, will represent the third repeater. 

4. The " Cornet" at the fore-royal masthead, or in steamers without 
masts, hoisted to the pendant staff forward , will indicate telegraphing with 
the Telegraphic Dictionary. 



Xll DIRECTIONS. 



5. Inasmuch as telegraphing with the Telegraphic Dictionary will only be 
occasional and temporary, the flags on page XXXIV of the Code should be 
numbered opposite to their respective letters, in pencil only, for reference, 
and to prevent mistakes by trusting entirely to memory. 

6. Vessels alone, or at sea, having no other general Signal Book than this 
on board, approached by or falling in with a strange sail, will be careful not 
to run the risk of exposing her own character to the stranger by attempting 
to communicate with her by signal, unless satisfied that the stranger is a 
friend. 



Instructions to communicate with a Vessel, Fort, or 

Station. 

1. Bend on the Ensign with Code Signal under it, (see page XXXTV.) and 
hoist. 

2. Search in the alphabetical part of the Code, Part II, from pages 115 to 
278, for the commanding word of the sentence you wish to communicate. 
For example : you wish to report that you have been attacked and want 
assistance. You search and find the commanding word attack on page 
127, and running your eye down to find the proper expression to use you 
find it ; and on the right of it you find the letters N K. These letters N K 
are then bent on to the signal halliards and run up to the masthead or 
hoisted from a place on board whence the signal can be seen to the best 
advantage. 

Turning over to Part I, and running your eye along the columns for the 
letters, (which are combined in regular order,) you find N K on page 3, 
being the same signal. Or if you wish to direct a vessel or vessels in com- 
pany and under your orders to make more sa 1, you find the commanding 
word sail on page 238, and running your eye down the column for the 
desired expression and finding " Make more sail," with the letters J V 
on the right, (having the Code Signal under the ensign hoisted,) you hoist 
J V, and the order is given. When answered, haul it down. Or you may 
find an expression suited to the occasion with no letters on the right ; then 
the letters on the left are to be employed. For example : you wish to say 
to vessels in company " I shall keep under easy sail, ,:> and you find on the 
left of the sentence D R P V. The flags representing these letters are to be 
bent on and hoisted in that order. 

In reading signals made to you, if of two or three flags representing two 
or three letters, the meaning will be found readily in Part I. If of four 
flags, then it will be found in Part II. 

GENERAL SIGNALS. PART I. 

3. These signals, from page 1 to page 3, embracing " Demand," " Com- 
pass," "Assistance," "Boats," "Danger," "Directions," "Ship- 
wreck," "Distress," "Fire," "Leak," and "Wants," should be 
studied, so that in case of wishing to make any of them they may be 
readily turned to in the book. 

4. By examining closely, and impressing on the memory the signals em- 
braced in Part I, fiom page 5 to page 52, relating to " Getting ashore, 
Sick, Collisions at Sea, Dispatches, Mails, News, Privateers, 
Suspicious vessels, 1]ste .^course with the shore, Latitude and 



\

Longitude, Observations, Position, Time, Weather, Winds, Assist- 
ance, Boats, Repairs, Provisions, Boilers, Engines, Fuel, Steam, 
Towing, Anchorage, Depth of Water, Lights, Land-marks, Course 
to steer, Getting under way, Sail, Working Ship," &c, they may 
be readily found and made. 



GEOGRAPHICAL SIGNALS. 

5. Signals of the names of places on the coast of the United States will 
be found on pages 102 and 103, Part 1, and the names of places alphabeti- 
cally arranged from page 279 to 325, Part II. 



CHANGE OF SYMBOLS. 

Changing the symbolic characters of the flags representing either letters of 
the alphabet (as on page XXXIV of the Code) or of the numerals repre- 
senting them, when using the Naval Telegraphic Dictionary. 

1. Ordinarily the upper flag represents the first letter, the next below the 
second letter, &c, or, with numerals, the upper flag represents the first 
numeral, the next below the second numeral, &c; or, in other words, the 
signals are read off by commencing with the upper flag. 

2. The Commanding Officer of a squadron may think proper to change 
the symbolic character of the flags as they are represented in the Signal 
Book, at a time when it may not be practicable or convenient to communi- 
cate with all the vessels except by signal. 

3. To do thi< by the Commercial Code, he must make signal " Symbols 
change."— (Page 258, D W K T.) When that signal is made and 
answered by all the vessels present, it is to be understood that so long as 
that order continues in force the reading of the flags will be reversed — that 
is, in making and reading signals they will be made and read from the 
bottom flag to the top, being the reverse of the usual mod± of making and 
reading them. 

4. Or the signification of the signal flags may be changed simply by the 
Commander-in-chief making the signal " Symbols change, >' and at the 
same time, or immediately after hauling down that sigDal, by hoisting the 
flags in the order in which he wishes them constiued in making signals for the 
time being. 

5. The answer to that signal (4) will be to hoist the same signal flags by 
each vessel in the order in which they are shown by the flag ship, and read 
them in the ordinary way, from top to bottom. 

6. This last mode (4 and 5) of changing symbols can be effected with 
certainty only where there is sufficient hoist for all the flags to be clearly 
seen and unmistakably recognized at one hoist, but a less number than the 
whole of the set of flags may be hoisted at one time, followed immediately 
by those next in the order in which they are to be recognized, until all of 
the flags of the Code are shown. 

7. Change of symbols may be a private signal also. A certain combina- 
tion may be determined upon by the Flag officer which he names, change 
of symbols No. 1, another No. 2, and so on. These combinations and num- 
bers having been previously communicated to the Commander of each 
vessel in the squadron, the signal "Symbols change " is made, and fol 
lowed immediately by the numeral, on page 3 of the Code. 



XIV DIRECTIONS. 



8. These orders of hoisting and reading signals, however, are not to con- 
tinue,' when made by signal, after separating from the Commanding officer 
who gave the order by signal, except in the event of a part of the vessels 
of the squadron being temporarily detached and sent on an expedition, or 
on other service, and to rejoin the squadron in the same vicinity. 

9. When a vessel falls in with another vessel of the same or of any other 
squadron which was not present when the change of symbols was ordded, 
the signals will be read and made in the ordinary way. 

ship's numbers. 

A list of all the vessels in the Navy, or in the employment of the Navy 
Department, with their numbers, will be furnished to the Commanding 
officer of each vessel. 

1. To make the number of the ship or vessel hoist the Code signal under 
the Ensign, to indicate the Code of signals used ; then bend on the cornet 
above the three flags representing the numeral (page 73) correspond- 
ing to the number of the vessel. 

2. In case the number lepresenting the vessel exceeds 100, then hoist 100, 
(W H L ;) when seen and answered haul it down and bend on the remain- 
der, under the cornet, necessary to complete the vessel's number. In case 
the number should exceed two hundred, then W H L must be hoisted or 
repeated twice, and the additional number also hoisted afterwards. If three 
hundred or more, then WHL must be hoisted or repeated three different 
times, &c. 

PRIVATE SIGNALS. 

A private signal might be given to all the vessels which are provided with 
the Commercial Code and Rogers's Marine Signal Flags, by which they 
might be readily recognized by Naval vessels. These signals may be ob- 
tained from the " Alphabetical spelling table," page 108, &c. 

The private signal of the Resolute, for example, might be Gyr on the list, 
which is repp sented by the signal flags C B W K. 

Note.— The signal D W K T, page 258 of the Commercial Code, must 
be changed in each copy to read " Symbols change."

ing ships, or boats, perform 
the same manoeuvre, until all 
have passed, and the stern- 
most ship becomes the van 
ship. No ship is to pass his 
leader, until that leader is in 
his proper place. As soon as 
all the ships are in their pro-

officer will most probably 
make the signal to "make 
sail."

Note. — If on a wind the 
stern most ship, or boat, is to 
tack, the rest to bear up to- 
gether, and haul to the wind 
on the contrary tack, as they 
arrive in the wake of the rear 
ship. 

If going free, all the ships 
are to wpar together. 

Form the order of sailing

Note. — When the divisional 
flags accompany this signal, 
the upper flag will point out 
the "weather column," if 
sailing on a wind, and the 
"starboard column," if sail- 
ing large, or before the wind. 
If on a wind, the senior 
officer will lead eithercolumn 
he may think proper. When 
sailing oft* the wind, he will 
most probably place himself 
between the two columns. 
From the order of sailing 
in two columns, form 
in line of battle, in open 
order, or at a sufficient 
distance to afford space 
according to the state of 
the weather for tacking, 
or any other evolutiou. 
Note. — The lee column is 
to continue on its course 
under very little sail. The 
weather column is to bear 
up together, and make sail, 
and preserving the relative 
bearing and distance, to haul 
to the wind together, and 
shorten sail when ahead of 
the lee column. Wlun the 
column bears up, the leading 
ship should steer such a 
course as would enable the 
stern most to take a station 
at least four cables' lengths 
ahead of the lee column. 

N. B. In "line of battle," 
or "order of sailing," close

vre 
Note.— The van squadron 
will tack in succession, and 
carry very little sail. The 
lee squadron will tack in 
each other's wake, when in 
the wake of the van squad- 
ron. 

From the order of sailing 
in three columns, form 
in line of battle, in open 
order, on the contrary 
tack, by columns wear- 
ing in succession and 
forming on the weather- 
most squadron, which 
is to lead the van 
Note. — The leading ship of 
the van squadron begins the 
movement as soon as the sig- 
nal is hauled down, the oth- 
ers following in succession. 
As soon as the last ship of the 
van squadron has put her 
helm up, the centre wears in 
succession, and comes to the 
wind in the wake of the van, 
which carries as little sail as 



988

possible. The ship leading 
the rear squadron, is in like 
manner to wear when the 
last ship of the centre has 
put her helm up, the restfol- 
lowing in succession and 
making all sail to regain dis- 
tance. Each ship is to pass 
under the stern of the rear 
ship of her own squadron, be- 
fore she hauls to the wind in 
line of battle. 

Form the order of retreat 
in two lines of bearing 
Note. — When it may be 
necessary to retreat from a 
superior force, the senior offi- 
cer will, in the first instance, 
form his ships in a line ahead, 
with the wind abeam, placing 
himself in the centre. He 
will then make the signal for 
the starboard division to form 
on a particular bearing from 
him, and for the port division 
to form on another, extend- 
ing or reducing the angular 
form as he may think proper. 
Should there be a convoy 
with him, they may be eol- 
lecting to leeward whilst the 
ships-of-war a v e so forming 
in readiness to place them- 
selves between the two lines. 
If it should be requisite to 
form the order of retreat sud- 
denly, the senior officer may 
direct the evolution to be 
performed without previously 
forming the line of battle 
ahead, by making the signal 
for the two divisions to form 
immediately on the particu- 
lar lines of bearing he may 
point out. 

Form the order of sailing 
to sail large 

Note.^- Definition of order 
of sailing in two columns. — 
If on a wind, the van forms 
the weather column, if sail- 
ing large, the starboard 
column. The columns are 
to be one mile and a half 
distant from each other, 
unless otherwise ordered by

signal. Ships are to be in the 
wake of each other, and the 
leading ships to bear from 
each other in the direction of 
the wind if close hauled. If 
sailing large, the leading ships 
are to be abreast of each 
other. 

Definition of order of sail- 
ing in three columns. — The 
centre squadron forms the 
centre squadron. The van 
to windward, if on a wind, 
or on the starboard side of 
the centre if going large or 
before the wind The rear 
squadron to leeward, or on 
the port side. The leading 
ships are to bear from each 
other in the direction of the 
wind if close hauled, and 
abreast of each other if sail- 
ing large. The columns to 
be one mile distant from each 
other. Any alteration in the 
order of sailing is to be com- 
menced by the leading ships, 
the others falling into their 
stations as soon as possible. 
Note when the divisions or 
squadrons are directed to 
draw nearer to or move 
further from each other, the 
movement is to be made by 
that division or squadron 
whose flag is uppermost ; the 
other divisions or squadrons 
continuing to act as if no sig- 
nal had been made. The sig- 
nal will be kept flying until 
the leading ships are in the 
position the senior officer 
wishes. If line of battle be 
formed as most convenient, 
the ships are to divide, so 
as to bring the senior offi- 
cer as nearly as possible in 
the centre. All ships ahead 
of him are then to be consid- 
ered as the starboard divi- 
sion ; all ships astern of him, 
the port division ; and this is 
to be considered the order of 
battle until countermanded. 

In performing any evolu- 
tion, the ships are to shorten

sail as requisite, but never to 
heave to unless absolutely 
necessary. 

When ships are detached, 
fall out of the line, &c., the 
remaining ships are to close 
up to the proper distance 
from those ahead of them. 

The port division is to 

form the port column 
Note.— In executing this 
manoeuvre, the leading ship 
of the port division is to pass 
astern of the leading ship of 
the starboard division, each 
of the others in like manner 
passing through their proper 
intetvals. In order to expe- 
dite and facilitate this opera- 
tion; the ships of the star- 
board division are to alter 
course together to starboard, 
and after the two divisions 
have passed each other, they 
are each gradually gaining 
their proper distance from 
each other, to resume their 
course. 

The starboard division is 
to form the port column 
Note. — In executing this 
manoeuvre, the leading ship 
of the starboard divisiou is to 
pass ahead of the leading ship 
of the port division, the 
second ship of the starboard 
division passing astern of the 
leading ship of the port divi- 
sion, and each ol the others in 
like manner passing through 
their proper intervals. For 
expediting this manoeuvre,

SIGNALS FOR STEAMERS. 



STEAMER'S CORNET,- HOISTED OYER, OR AT A DIF- 
FERENT MAST-HEAD. 



INSTRUCTIONS FOR STEAMERS PASSING EACH OTHER. 

Steam vessels, under steam, are to keep themselves clear of the course of 
sailing vessels, and, when practicable, to pass astein and to leeward of 
them. 

When steam vessels, not under sail, but on different courses, must un- 
avoidably or necessarily cross so near that by continuing their respective 
courses there would be a risk of coming into collision, they are always to 
pass on the port side of each other. 

A steam vessel passing another in a narrow channel must always leave 
the vessel she is passing on the port hand.

NIGHT SIGNALS. 



BY COSTON'S PREPARED LIGHTS. 



Any of the day signals in this Code may be made at night with Coston's 
lights. 

The Colored Lights, as shown by the Chart below, take the place of the 
flags. 

The different lights and the combinations of lights answering to the 
Numerals, Preparatory, and Answering Signals are prepared at the Labora- 
tory, and each roll marked 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, O, P, or A.

148 NIGHT SIGNALS. 



DIRECTIONS FOR USE. 

When it is desired to communicate by these lights, first use the P (pre- 
paratory) signal, and if answered by the A (answering) signal, shows that 
the preparatory signal was seen ; after which, place in rapid succession, on 
the holder, the numbers desired to be communicated; for example, if the 
number selected should be 726, the No. 7 is placed on the holder and ignited, 
which will of course show a Green flame ; as soon as the light is out, imme- 
diately replace it by No 2, which will show a White succeeded by a Red 
flame ; and then replace with No. 6, Red and Green. If any further com- 
bination of numbers is to be signaled belore receiving an answer, an inter- 
val of not more than three-quarters of a minute should be taken. Should 
this interval be exceeded, an answer may be returned. 

The person stationed to note the colors telegraphed to him should be 
cautioned against looking at the brilliant flame of the signals burning near 
him, as thereby the eye is unfitted to discern distinctly the colors of distant 
lights. 

To ignite the signal apply a lighted match-rope or port- fire. 

The symbols embraced in the Chart of Coston's Lights may represent 
any other numerals, whenever it may be thought expedient to give them a 
different signification. 

To report Vessels' or Boats' numbers, names, or other distinctions that 
may be assigned to them, at night, by Coston's IAghts. 

Inasmuch as there is no Light embraced in Coston's Method of a char- 
acter similar to the " Cornet" among flags for day signaling, it becomes 
necessary to devise some simple mode by which a vessel or boat may sig- 
nify its intention to make known its number, name, &c. This may be done 
by exhibiting the Preparatory Light P, followed immediately by a Rocket, 
and concluded by exhibiting the Lights answering to the name of the vessel, 
as found in this Code, (see List of Navy Vessels, page 142 ;) but if it be 
a Launch, Cutter, or other boat, the number answering to the Boat, (pre- 
viously assigned to it, (see Boat Squadrons, page 150,) must be made. 
The observer will readily distinguish a boat from a vessel by the aid of the 
signal lights. The numbers, names, or other characteristic distinctions of all 
vessels not embraced in the List of Vessels in this Code must be inserted 
in writing as they are assigned previous to the departure of an expedition, 
or the list must be corrected by the addition of all the Vessels and Boats as 
they report for duty in the Flotilla. 

TO CHANGE THE SIGNIFICATION OR NUMERICAL 
VALUE OF THE COSTON SYMBOLS BY SIGNAL AT 
NIGHT. 

Make the signal (which will be found in this Code) "Symbols change," 
in the same way that any other signal would be made. When this signal 
is answered by "all the vessels of the Flotilla or Boat Squadron, it is to be 
understood that for the time being the values of the symbols are to be 



NIGHT SIGNALS. 140 



changed, so that © is to be read as 1; 9 is to be read as 2; 8 is to be read 
rs3; 7 is to be read as 4 ; 6 is to be read as 5 ; 5 is to be read as 6 ; 4 
is to be read as 7; 3 is to I e read as 8 ; 2 is to be read as 9, and 1 is to 
be read as O. 

Or, the signal may be made (if in the face of the enemy) "Symbols 
change, No. 1 or No. 2." 

These two last changes must, however, be determined upon by the Com- 
mander-in-Chief, and communicated to each Commander of a Division pre- 
vious to the departure of a Flotilla or Boat Squadron on service. 

PKIVATE NIGHT SIGNALS. 

A private signal may be devised and made by these lights. Private signals 
for exhibition at night should be simple in combination, and, unlike all other 
signals, made with the same materials. 



FLOTILLA AND BOAT SQUADRONS. 



Numbers or distinctions of Vessels and Boats composing Floidla 
and Boat Squadrons. 

[The following list is to be known as the Boat Squadron List, in contra- 
distinction to the list of vessels belonging to the Navy in this Code,, on 
pages 142 to 146.]

NIGHT SIGNALS, 



BY NAVY LIGHTS, ROCKETS, AND LANTERNS. 



In case Coston's Prepared Lights are not supplied, or at hand, the 
Colored Lights furnished for Naval General Signals may be used. 

The " Symbols" may be employed according to the following Chart, or 
other numerals may be assigned to them.

Answering Signal. 




To make signal to a particular Division, Column, Vessel or Boat, a Lan- 
tern will be hoisted or shown where it can be seen to the best advantage ; 
then a Rocket will be sent up, which will indicate that signals are about to 
be made to a Division, Column, Boat or Vessel answering to a number in 
the Flotilla and Boat Squadron List, (page 150,) and which will be shown 
next. The number in that List corresponding to the Vessel or Boat, 
will then be made, and when answered, the Lantern Light will be lowered 
or masked. 

Then proceed to make the signals in the ordinary way, using these lights 
to represent the numbers corresponding to the signals in this Code. 

In making signals with these Lights, there should be an interval of about 
half a minute between the exhibition of a light or lights, representing one 
numeral of each signal, and about one minute should elapse between the 
conclusion of a signal and the commencement of another of a series of 
signals. There should be no eclipse or interval of darkness between the 
exhibition of lights representing a single numeral. 

PEIYATB NIGHT SIGNALS. 

Private Signals may be made with these Lights, but they must be deter- 
mined upon, arranged and communicated by the Commander-in-Chief for 
all special expeditions or occasions. 

TO CHANGE THE SIGNIFICATION OR NUMERICAL 
VALUE OF THE NAVY SIGNAL LIGHTS BY SIGNAL. 



Proceed as in the case of the Coston Lights, only using the Navy Gene- 
ral Signal Lights instead of Coston's. 



OTHER NIGHT SIGNALS, 

FOR BOATS, AND BOAT-SQUADRONS.

Note.— When one or more Lanterns are employed in making the forego- 
ing signals, they are to be kept up or visible until the whole of the signal is 
made. When the signal is completed, the lantern or lanterns will be 
hauled down or masked. 

Signals made with Lanterns, Blue Lights, Rockets, and Flashes, should, 
as a general rule, be answered by waving a lantern by hand in front of the 
person holding it. When no Lantern is available, the Flash Pan and a 
flask of powder should be in readiness to make a flash as an answer to 
each signal. 

Special distinguishing night signals or distinctions may be given to other 
Vessels or Boats than those at the head of Divisions or Squadrons in using 



160 OTHER NIGHT SIGNALS. 



the signals made with Blue Lights, Rockets, and Lanterns; but they must 
be determined upon and arranged for each special occasion. 

Red, Blue, Green, and White Lanterns will serve to give a number of 
distinctions, such as : 

No. 1. One Red Lantern Light. 

2. One Green Lantern Light. 

3. One Blue Lantern Light. 

4. One Red and one White perpendicular. 

5. One Red and one Blue perpendicular. 

6. One Ked and one Green perpendicular. 

7. One White and one Red perpendicular. 

8. One White and one Green perpendicular. 

9. One White and one Blue perpendicular. 

10. One Green and one White perpendicular. 

11. One Green and one Red perpendicular. 

12. One Green and one Blue perpendicular. 

13. One Blue and one White perpendicular. 

14. One Blue and one Red perpendicular. 

15. One Blue and one Green perpendicular. 

16. Two Red Lanterns horizontal. 

17. Two Green Lanterns horizontal. 

18. Two Blue Lanterns horizontal. 

19. One Red and one White Lantern horizontal. 

20. One Red and one Green Lantern horizontal. 

21. One Red and one Blue Lantern horizontal. 

As all vessels of the Navy, whether propelled by steam or sails, are 
required by the General Order of the Navy Department to carry Red and 
Green lights, and to have White lights on board for exhibition according 
to the directions embraced in that General Order, there will necessarily be 
spare Colored Lanterns, or spare Colored Glass, to replace any that may be 
broken, which may be used on occasions when Colored Lantern lights are 
required in making signals. 

In case there should be neither spare Colored Lanterns nor spare Colored 
Glass for shades to ordinary lanterns, thin Red, Green, and Blue bunting 
stretched tightly around the horn or glass of the lanterns will give, for 
short distances, a sufficiently brilliant light and marked color to answer the 
purpose.

EQUIPMENT OF BOATS ARMED FOR SERVICE, 

(ORDNANCE INSTRUCTIONS, 1860.) 

CHAPTER IV, (Page 94.) 

EQUIPMENT OF BOATS. 

When directed to be manned and armed for service. 



316. Boats are to be provided according to the time they are to be absent 

and the nature of the service they are to perform, keeping in view 
the details prescribed in table article 333. 
Boat Howitzers are to be distributed as follows : 

317. In Ships-of-the-line and first class Propeller Frigates, each of their 

two Launches is to have a 24-pounder of 1,300 pounds weight, 
with a boat carriage ; and both the first and second Cutters are to 
have a 12-pounder of 750 pounds weight, with a boat and also a 
field carriage. 

318. In all other Frigates, each of the two Launches is to have a 12-pounder 

of 750 pounds, with a boat and also a field carriage ; and the First 
Cutter is to have a 12-pounder of 430 pounds, with a boat carriage. 

319. In Razee Sloops (Frigates cut down) and first class Propeller Sloops. 

the Launch is to have a 12-pounder of 750 pounds, with a boat and 
a field carriage; and the First Cutter a 12-pounder of 430 pounds, 
with a boat carriage. In first and second class Sailing Sloops, the 
Launch is to have a 12-pounder of 750 pounds, with boat and field 
carriages. 

320. In all other Sloops and Brigs, the Launch is to have a 12-pounder of 

430 pounds, with a boat and a field carriage. Whenever the How- 
itzers are to be used in boats, they are to be fitted for the purpose 
as directed in pages 4, 5, and 6, of " Exercise and Manoeuvre of 
Boat Howitzers." — (See Appendix D.) Their crews are to be 
armed with swords and revolvers. 

321 . For boarding parties, swords and revolvers and rifles loading at the 

breech, with filled cartridge boxes, are to be supplied. 

322. When boats "manned and armed " are ordered, the officers assigned 

to the command of the boats will see that they are thus furnished, 
or otherwise, as may be specially directed, and report when the 
boats are ready. They will also see that all articles are safely re- 
turned, or duly accounted for, when the boats return to the vessel. 
If the boats are directed to assemble alongside of any particular vessel, 
the officers are to report as they arrive there. If signalled along- 
side of the ship of the Commander of the Squadron for exercise 
or for inspection, they are to be inspected, if he shall so direct, by 
an officer appointed by him, whose duty it shall be to report hose 
which may be particularly well prepared and those which he may 
find deficient in equipment or arrangement, specifying particulars. 



164 EQUIPMENT OF BOATS ARMED FOR SERVICE. 



MANOEUVRES OF BOATS ARMED FOR SERVICE. 

323. The boats of a vessel being completely armed and equipped as directed, 

they are to hoist their colors, shove off, and fall in as follows : 
No.]. First Launch. 
No. 2. Second Launch. 
No. 3. First Cutter. 
No. 4. Second Cutter. 
No. 5. Third Cutter. 
No. 6. Fourth Cutter. 
Or, if they he less than six in number, they are to fall in agreeably to 

the order of their size and designation, with the Senior Officer 

always in the leading boat. 
The boats of each ship are to constitute a sub-division. 

324. When the officer designated to command all the boats of a squadron 

has had them assembled, they are to form, in the above order, into 
as many columns as there are vessels to which the boats belong. 

ORDER OF COLUMNS. 

325. The order of seniority of the Commanding Officers of sub-divisions of 

boats is to regulate the relative position of the columns ; and, sup- 
posing that the natural series of the alphabet represents this order 
of seniority, the columns will be as follows : 



D.

This arrangement of boats is to be called the first order, and it is to 
serve as a basis for all other manoeuvring. 



EQUIPMENT OF BOATS ARMED FOR SERVICE. 165 



TO FORM IN THE ORDER OF ATTACK, THREE DEEP. 

326. Each even numbered boat of a column is be to placed to the right of 
the next ahead of it.

Thus, in the order of attack three deep, the boats will be arranged as 
follows :

3, 4. 3, 4. 3, 4. 3, 4. 3, 4. 3, 4. 3, 4. 3, 4. 3, 4.

1G6 EQUIPMENT OF BOATS ARMED FOR SERVICE. 



TO FORM IN THE ORDER OF ATTACK, TWO DEEP. 

327. In each column, boats Nos. 2 and 3 are to be placed to the right of 
No. 1, and boats Nos. 5 and 6 to the right of No. 4.

Thus, in the order of attack two deep, the boats will be arranged 
follows:

4 56 456 456 456 456 456 456 456 456 



EQUIPMENT OF BOATS AHMED FOR SERVICE. 167 



TO FORM IN THE FIRST ORDER. 

328. To pass from either order of attack, just mentioned, to the First Order, 

the manoeuvring is to be the inverse of that by which the order of 
attack is formed. 

TO FORM LINE AHEAD. 

329. The orders of attack being formed as designated, it is sufficient for all 

the boats together to alter the course eight points, one way or the 
other, to become arranged in a line ahead in two or three columns. 
Being thus arranged in a line ahead, by returning back eight points, 
the boats will be again arranged in an order of attack, two or three 
deep. 

TO CHANGE THE DIRECTION OF THE FRONT. 

330. The evolution of changing the direction of the front of the orders of 

attack is effected by a general movement at the time the course, 
which the leaders of columns are to steer, is shown by signal. 

TO FORM THE ORDER OF RETREAT. 

331 This order is the reverse of the first order. 

To pass from ihe first order to the order of retreat all the boats turn 
together sixteen points in the same way, and thus retire protected 
by the guns of the Launches. 

FORMATION OF DIVISIONS. 

332. Two or three divisions of attack may be formed to operate upon two 
or three points at the same time. 
In the first case, the boats on the right, including those of the com- 
manding officer, constitute the first division, and those on the left 
the second. 
In the second case, the third of the boats on the left constitute the 
second division ; the third on the right, the third division ; and the 
third at the centre, the first division. 



Note. — The manoeuvres of boats armed for service, from Article 323 to 
332, inclusive, are derived from the " Reglement sur le service Interieur a 
bord des batiments de la none," published by authority of the French gov- 
ernment in 1852.

N. B In order to avoid delay and confusion when boats are called 
away for service, it is recommended that the articles required by the 
foregoing li^ts should be kept separately in the storerooms, in con- 
venient packages for stowage in the boats and protection against 
weather. The contents of each package should be marked on it, 
together with the name of the boat for which it is intended. Par- 
ticular attention should be paid by the executive officer of the vessel 
to the bi-st and mo>t compact stowage of all articles required for 
boat expeditions, which will necessarily var> according to the size 
of the boat and the nature of the service she is to perform. 

NOTES ON THE USE OF BOAT HOWITZERS. 

Derived from the "B~at armament of the United States navy," 1856, 
originally reported to the Chief of the Bureau of Ordnance and 
Hydrography by Commander Dahlgren, 185*2. 

319. N. B. Before equipping boats with the howiizers notice attentively the 
" hints for general service," commencing at page 146, and " sugges- 
tions for landing," page 127, of that sy:*tem, which relate more 
especially to the condition and management of boat guns 

330. "Too much care cannot be taken to be fully provided, and to have 
each detail in good condition ; for, after the boat has left the ship, 
it may be impossible to compensate for failure in some seemingly 
trivial article." 

351. The chief purposes of naval light artillery are : 

1. To attack small vessels that are lightly armed and furnish but 

slight protection to the crews. 

2. To contend with other armed boats. 

3 To cover the landing of regular troops. 

352. The landing of seamen is rather a remote contingency in the naval 

service, and should never be resorted to when opposed by good 
infantry, or when the object to be attained would take the seamen 
too far from their boats, which should be the base of operations. 

BOAT GUNS. 

353. No tackles are required to run out 12-pounders ; 24 pounders may pos- 

sibly require them. 

354. The hole in the cascable for reeving a breeching has been purpose'y 

omitted in howitzers recently cast, as hitherto the use of a breeching 
has not been found necessary. Should one be required a thimble 
m*y be fitted to the neck of the knob to serve in the place of this 
hole With a breeching the piece may be fired as if on an ordinary 
carriage. 

355. The recoil is controlled by compressing the slide between the bed and 

the lower plate. It is necessary, however, that the surfaces of the 
carriage to be in contact should be plane. If they are not so, dis- 
mount the gun and examine them, and where the wood is worn 



176 EQUIPMENT OF BOATS ARMED FOR, SERVICE. 



smooth remove it in the slightest manner and correct the surfaces 
generally, which will be found to reduce the recoil. In making the 
surface plane it is by no means necessary that it should be rendered 
smooth. It ought to be as little so as possible for the present pur- 
pose. 

FIELD CARRIAGE. 

356. In order to moderate the recoil on smooth ground take out the axle or 

pin of the trail wheel and turn the wheel up on the trail. 
In using the howitzer on shore one or two double boxes of ammunition 
may be lashed under the axle of the field carriage. When more 
than a single piece is landed it may be found convenient to secure 
the trail of one field carriage to the axle of another, and then by 
means of pieces of stuff, or boats' i-pars, secured from axle to axle, 
to place the ammunition boxes, provisions, pouches, &c, upon 
them. 

357. Shrapnel may be effectively used where the dispersion of common 

canister becomes too great and its effects feeble. It takes the place 
of common shell to a great extent when uncovered masses of men 
are in view, and is designed to burst in front of troops, and at just 
such a distance and height as to disperse the balls among them. 

358. Similar terms are used in marking the sight and the fuse, thus : if the 

fuse be adjusted to 2" and the piece elevated by the sight raised to 
the line on it marked 2", then the shrapnel will burst about 500 
yards from the piece and spread its balls from that point to a con- 
siderable distance farther — effectively at least 150 yards. The ad- 
justment of the fuse to the distance and the altitude of explosion 
are regulated to the elevation ; and, therefore, the three conditions 
to good effect may be said to depend mainly on a correct knowledge 
of distance. 

359. The 12-pounder shrapnel contains 80 musket balls, and if its explosion 

occur at one hundred or one hundred and twenty yards in front of 
the object, one-seventh of the number of balls may be relied on to 
take effect on an object 20 by 10 feet square. 

360. The shell maybe advantageously substituted for shrapnel when the 

hostile force is sheltered, especially by such quarters as small craft 
or merchantmen afford, or when material of any kind is the object 
of the fire. 

361 . At a couple of hundred yards canister only is required. 

FUSES. 

362. When provided with the Bormann fuse the shrapnel, or shell, as 

issued is complete. The upper surface of this fuse is graduated 
into seconds and fourths of seconds, and it is only necessary to lay 
bare the composition contained in the fuse by the cutting tool to 
prepare the projectile for instant use. In this respect the Bormann 
fuse has an advantage over the ordinary fuse. 

363. The ordinary fuse consists of a wooden tube driven into the shrapnel 

after the balls are put in, which is to receive a paper case containing 
the composition. Five of these fuses are allowed to each shrapnel, 
their times of burning being, respectively, 1", 2", 3", 4". and 5". 
They are packed in a paper case, and before the shrapnel is placed 
in the howitzer a fuse of the time supposed to correspond to the 
distance is selected and inserted in the wooden tube. The shells 
for howitzers are fitted in the same manner. 



EQUIPMENT OF BOATS ARMED FOR SERVICE. 17 



364. Both shrapnel and sheila fused in this way must be charged with 

powder while preparations are in progress for clearing and getting 
ready the boats. These charges are — 

Shrapnel. Shell. 

For the 12-pounders A\ oz. 5 1b. 

For the 24-pounders ... 6 oz. 1.0 1b. 

The charges are adapted to these quantities. After the shell has been 
charged the orifice of the plug should be clo-ed with a tow stopper. 

365. Fixed ammunition is preferable on the score of greater convenience 

and of avoiding difficulties. 

366 . Moistening the sponge is recommended. Brightening howitzers is not 

approved. 



Note to note to signal 708 (page 10) " Evolutionary Boat Signals." 
After the word "landing," at the end of the note, add "Circumstances 
may make it necessary for the boats to anchor and veer to, sufficiently to 
land the troops and then haul off, in readiness for such subsequent opera- 
tions as may be required."

GENERAL ORDER. 



To prevent collisions at sea, the following lights and fog signals are hereby 

adopted and ordered to be carried into practice and strictly observed by all 

steam and sailing vessels of the United States navy. 

ISAAC TOUCEY, 

Secretary of the Navy, 
Navy Department, November 10, 1858. 



STEAM VESSELS. 

All sea-going steam vessels, when under steam, shall, between sunset and 
sunrise, exhibit the following lights : 

1. A bright While light at the foremast head. 
A Green light on ihe starboard side. 
A Red light on the port side. 

2. The Mast-head light shall be so constructed as to be visible on a dark 
night, with a clear atmosphere, at a distance of at least 5 miles, and shall 
show an uniform and unbroken light over an arc of the horizon of 20 points 
of the compass, and it shall be so fixed as to throw the light 10 points on 
each side of the ship, viz: from right ahead to 2 points abaft the beam on 
either side. 

3. The Green light on the starboard side and the Red light on the port side 
hall be so consiructed as to be visible on a dark night, with a clear atmos- 
phere, at a distance of at least 2 miles, and show an uniform and unbroken 
light over an arc of the horizon of 10 points of the compass, and they shall 
be so fixed as to throw the light from right ahead to 2 points abaft the beam 
on the starboard and on the port sides respectively. 

4. The side lights are to be fitted with inboard screens projecting at least 
3 feet forward from the light, so as to prevent the lights from being seen 
across the bow. 

5. Steam vessels, under sail only, are not to carry their Mast-head light. 

FOG SIGNALS. 

All sea-going steam vessels, whether propelled by paddles or screws, 
when their steam is up, and when under way, shall, in all cases of fog, use 
as a Fog Signal a Steam Whistle, placed before the funnel at not less than 8 
feet from the deck, which shall be sounded once at least every five minutes ; 
but when the steam is not up, they shall use a Fog Horn or Bell, as ordered 
for sailing ships. 



GENERAL ORDER. 181 



SAILING VESSELS. 

1. All sea-going sailing vessels, when under way or being towed, shall, 
between sunset and sunrise, exhibit a Green light on the starboard side and 
a Red light on the port side of the vessel, and such light* shall be so con- 
structed as to be visible on a dark night, with a clear atmosphere, at a dis- 
tance of at least 2 miles, and shall show an uniform and unbroken ligut 
over an arc of the horizon of 10 points of the compass, from right ahead to 
2 points abaft the beam on the starboard and on the port sides respectively. 

2. The colored lights shall be fixed whenever it is practicable so to exhibit 
them ; and shall be fitted with inboard screens projecting at least 3 feet 
forward from the light, so as to prevent the lights being seen across the 
bow. 

3. When the colored lights cannot be fixed (as in the case of small vessels 
in bad weather) they shall be kept on deck between sunset and sunrise, and 
on their proper sidis of the vessel, ready for instant exhibition, and shall be 
exhibited in such a manner as can be best seen on the approach of, or to, 
any other vessel or vessels, in sufficient tine to avoid collision, and so that 
the Green light shall not be seen on the port side, nor the Red light on the 
starboard side. 

FOG SIGNALS. 

All sea-going sailing vessels, when under way, shall, in all cases of fog, 
use when on the starboard tack a Fog Horn, and when on the port tack 
shall ;ing a Bed. These signals shall be sounded once at least every five 
minutes. 



VESSELS AT ANCHOR. 

All sea-going vessels, when at anchor in roadsteads or fairways, shall, 
between sun?-et and sunrise, exhibit where it can best be seen, but at a 
height not exceeding 20 feet above the hull, a White light in the globular 
lantern of 8 inches in diameter, and so constructed as to show a clear uni- 
form, and unbroken light all round the horizon, at a distance of at least 1 
mile. 

The following Diagrams are intended to illustrate the use of the Lights 
carried by vessels at sea, and the manner in which they indicate to the 
ves>el wh.ch sees them the position and description of the vessel which 
carries them: 

First— When both Red and Green lights are seen : 

A sees a Red and Green light ahead; A knows that a vessel is 
approaching her on a course directly opposite to her own, as B : 





If A sees a White Mast-head light above the other two, she 
knows that B is a steam vessel. 



182 



GENERAL ORDER. 



Second— When the Red and not the Green light is seen: 

A sees a Red light ahead or on the bow; A knows that either, 
1, a vessel is approaching her on her port bow, as B, 





or, 2, a vessel is crossing in some direction to port, as D D D. 




If A sees a White Mast-head light above the Red light, A knows 
that the vessel is a steam vessel, and is either approaching her in 
the same direction, as B, or is crossing to port in some direction, 
as D D D. 



GENERAL ORDER. 



183 



Third — When the Green and not the Red light is seen : 

A sees a Green light ahead or on ihe bow ; A knows that either, 
1, a vessel is approaching her on her starboard bow, as B ; 





or, 2, a vessel is crossing in some direction to starboard, as D D D. 






If A sees a White Mast head light above the Green light, a knows 
that the vessel is a steam vessel, and is either approaching her in 
the same direction, as B, or is crossing to starboard in some direc- 
tion, as D D D. 



RULES OF THE ROAD. 



" When vessels shall be crossing each other on different tacks, and there 
shall be any doubt which can pass to windward with perfect safety, the 
ship on the Starboard tack shall keep her wind, and the vessel on the Port 
tack shall keep away, without any regard being paid to rank of the respec- 
tive commanders, V 

" Vessels going with the wind free always to give way to those by the 
wind." 

" Vessels under steam alone shall always give way to sailing vessels." 

" All vessels are to bear up, shorten sail, steam slower, or back in such 
manner as may be most convenient to prevent collision."— (Directions : 
Signals U. S. Navy, adopted July 13, 1858.; 



LIGHTS TO BE CARRIED AT NIGHT AND DIRECTIONS 
TO PREVENT COLLISION. 

By the General Order of the Navy Department, (see ante) " All sea-going 
steam vessels, when under steam, shall, between sunset and sunrise, ex- 
hibit the following lights : 

" A bright White light at the Foremast head. 

u A Green light on the Starboard side. 

" A Red light on the Port side." 

" Steam vessels under sail only, are not to carry their Masthead light." 

SAILING VESSELS. 

"All sea-going sailing vessels, when under way or being towed, shall, 
between sunset and sunrise, exhibit a Green light on the Starboard side, 
and a Red light on the Port side of the vessel." ***** 

FOG SIGNALS. 

" All sea-going steam vessels, whether propelled by paddles or screws, 
when their steam is up, and when under way, shall in all cases of Fog use 
as a Fog signal a Steam Whistle, ***** which shall be sounded 
once at least every five minutes ; but when the steam is not up, they shall 
use a Fog horn or bell, as ordered for sailing ships." 

" All sea-going sailing vessels, when under way, shall, in all cases of 
Fog, use when on the Starboard tack a Fog horn, and when on the Port 
tack, shall Ring a Bell. These Signals shall be sounded once at least every 
rive minutes." 



EULES OF THE ROAD. 



185 



VESSELS AT ANCHOR. 



"All sea-going vessels, when at anchor in roadsteads or fairways, shall, 
between sunset and sunrise, exhibit where it can best be seen, but at a 
height not exceeding 20 feet above the hull, a White Light in a Globular 
Lantern of 8 inches in diameter, and so constructed as to show a clear, uni- 
form, and unbroken light all round the horizon, at a distance of at least 1 
mile." 

Although the foregoing directions of the Navy Department are only im- 
perative on board vessels of the Navy, yet as a general rule all the sea and 
other steamers of the United States conform to them. 

The British, French, Netherlands, and Russian Governments, have issued 
orders requiring all the vessels sailing or steaming under their respective 
flags to carry the lights and conform strictly to regulations of similar tenor 
to those of the Navy Department of November 10, 1858, (ante.) 

The following Diagrams and illustrations may be useful for reference. 
The letter G will signify a Green light, and R a Red light. 



1st Situation. 





In this situation the two Colored lights visible to each vrssel, will indi- 
cate their direct approach head on. The general, if not universal, rule in 
ihis case is, for both vessels to put their helms to pori. In England 
this rule is imperative. 



2d Situation. 





In this situation, the vessels placed as A and B will see the Red light 
only, of each other, the screens hiding the green lights from that point of 
vievv, showing that they are passing to Port ; but if in any doubt, as to the 
distance they would pass, by continuing their course, both should Port 
their helm until out of all danger of collision. 



186 



RULES OF THE ROAD. 




3d Situation. 




With A and B in this position the Green light only of each vessel will be 
seen, showing that they are passing to Starboard. The precaution, to give 
a good berth in passing, should be taken, by putting the helms of both ves- 
sels to Starboard until out of all danger of collision. 



4th Situation. 





In this situation A will see B's Green light only, which will clearly show 
that B is crossing to starboard of A, either perpendicular to A's course, or 
obliquely to it. B will, as he approaches the line of A's course, see A's Red 
light, and as he passes ahead will open both Colored lights, as well as the 
White (masthead) light, (if a Sieamer,) indicating that A is steering directly 
towards him. 



5th Situation. 




In this situation the steamer A will see only the Red light of the steamer 
B, in either of the three positions she may be in. A will know that the 



RULES OF THE ROAD. 



18' 



Port side of B is towards him, and that B is crossing the hows of A in some, 
direction to Port. Under these circumstances A should Pout his helm with- 
out hesitation, to give B a good berth in passing. 

In either of the positions of B in the fifth diagram he will see the Green, 
White, and Red lights or A in a triangular shape, (if a Steamer,) which will 
show B clearly that A is approaching directly towards him, and he should 
act promptly to guard against a collision. 



6th Situation 




In this situation A will see a Green light on the bow, or nearly ahead. If 
A sees a White Masthead light at the same time, he knows that it is a 
steamer, and that she is either approaching him on the port bow, as in 
situation B 3, or crossing his bows to starboard perpendicularly to his line 
of course or obliquely from, or obliquely towards him. B will see, first, 
A's Red light, and after drawing ahead, his White (masthead) light a.\so, if 
a steamer. 



.88 



RULES OF THE ROAD. 



th Situation. 





In this situation A will see B's Red light, and will know that B's Pott 
side is nearest to him, find therefore that B is passing across his bows to 
Poit If A should see B's White masthead light at the same time that he 
sees the Red light, he will know that it is a steamer, and is passing either 
directly or obliquely across his bows. If he sees the Red light only, he will 
know that B. if a steamer, is passing to starboard of the line perpendicular 
to his course. 



8th Situation, 





This is a very common situation for vessels to be placed in at sea, and 
one demanding great caution and watchfulness. A sees B's Red light and 
White (masthead) light, if a steamer. B sees A's Green light and White 
(masthead) light, if a steamer, which will show them that they are ap- 
proaching each other. This is a case for which no general or certain rule 
can be laid down. Circumstances must be considered at the time, and they 
must be the guide in acting. 



RULES OF THE ROAD. 189 

RULES OF THE BRITISH ADMIRALTY. 

RULE AS TO VESSELS PASSING EACH OTHER. 

" Whenever any vessel proceeding in one direction meets a vpssel pro- 
ceeding in another direction, and the master or other person having charge 
of either such vessel perceives that if both vessels continue their respective 
courses they will pass so near as to involve any risk of a collision, he shall 
put the helm of his vessel to Port, so as to pass on the Port side of the other 
vessel, due regard being had to the tide, and to the position of each vessel 
with respect to the dangers of the channel, and, as regards sailing vessels, 
to the keeping of each vessel under command ; and the master of any steam 
vessel navigating any river or narrow channel, shall keep as far as practica- 
ble to that side of the fairway or mid-channel thereof which lies on the 
starboard side of each vessel." * * * * 

RULES FOR SAILING AS WELL AS STEAM VESSELS. 

" Whereas, the recognized rule for sailing vessels is, that those having the 
wind fair shall give way to those on a wind : 

" That when both are going by the wind, the vessel on the Starboard tack 
sh ill keep the wind, and the one on the Port tack bear up, thereby passing 
each other on the port hand : 

" That when both vessels have the wind large, or abeam, and meet, they 
shall pass each other in the same way on the port hand ; to effect which 
two last mentioned objects, the helm must be put to port: 

''And as steam-vessels may be considered in the light of vessels navi- 
gating with a fair wind, and should give way to sailing vessels on a wind on 
either tack, it becomes only necessary to provide a Rule for their observance 
when meeting other steamers or sailing vessels going large." 

RULE. 

" When steam-vessels on different courses must unavoidably or necessa- 
rily cross so near that by continuing their respective courses there would be 
a risk of coming in collision, each vessel shall put her helm to Port, so as 
always to pass on the Port side of each other. 

" A steam-vessel passing another in a narrow channel must always leave 
the vessel she is passing on the Port hand." 



DISTRESS, OR ASSISTANCE SIGNALS. 

TO BE MADE WITHOUT FLAGS OR SIGNAL BOOKS. 

(Boats' crews should be taught these Signals ) 



1. Want a Boat. 



2. Want a boat for sick or 
wounded. 




'd. Wrecked, or in 
a sinking con- 
dition. 




4. In distress for food and 
water. 




5. The enemy is approaching, or 
close upon me. 



Hat, cap, flag, garment, handker- 
chief, bundle of sea-weed, or branch 
of tree or shrub, waved by right hand 
from head to foot. 



Hat, cap, bundle, or branch of a 
tree or shrub held perpendicularly 
over the head. 



Hat, cap, bundle, or any object 
which may be readily held in each 
hand at arms length, perpendicular 
to the body. 



Hat, cap, or bundle held out in 
each hand at arms length over the 
head. 



Hat, cap, bundle, garment, 
other object waved quickly over 
head. 



DISTRESS, OR ASSISTANCE SIGNALS. 



191 



6. Cannot make any headway, or 
losing ground ; send a line 
astern by a float or assistance. 



Return to the shore, ship, or place 
of departure. 



Hat, cap, flag, handkerchief, or 
garment in the right hand, with the 
arm extended at fud length and 
straight from the body. 



A small open flag waved horizon- 
tally or heli with both hands by the 
corners so as to be blown out by the 
wind. 



These Signals should be continued by the person in distress, or asking 
for assistance, until repeated by the ship or boat addressed. 

The person answering the Signals should take a prominent position, and 
show as much of his person as possible while repeating the Signal.
